Sick Chickens

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello I am a new chicken owner. I have 6 chickens. 2 New Hampshire, 2 Red Star, 1 white Delaware, and one Easter Egger. I have had them about 1 week. All was great, but now 4 have come down with upper respiratory symptoms. The person I bought them from (she has MANY chickens) told me to use injectable Tylan. I bought Tylan 50. I need to know how much to give, and what needle size. I am planning on giving IM injections. Any help would be awesome! I don't want to lose my new chickens! ūüė≠

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! Sorry to hear you have sick flock members hugs.gif Please do pop by the emergency injury disease section of the forum. Here is the link ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
I'm sure members there will be able to help you. If it were horses I could offer you some advice on injecting but I've never had to do my chickens. I do know that @casportpony is great with things like this so you might like to shoot her a message.

Good luck with your birds, I hope they are well agian soon fl.gif

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
